Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Series:  Between #1
Author:  April Genevieve Tucholke
Publisher:  Dial
Pages:  368
Release Date:  August 15, 2013
You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.
Why I'm waiting on Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea:  Um, have you read that blurb?  How can I not be drooling at the thought of getting my hands on this book!  I'm so excited to read it!  I've heard nothing but praise and I'm positive it will live up to all the talk!  The mystery, the romance, and the chilling horror the blurb teases with is enough to have me counting down the days until this one releases!  (77 more days in case you were wondering.)

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. I can't wait for The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! It looks weird and creepy and fabulous. Also 'Some Quiet Place' by Kelsey Sutton, which comes out in a few weeks!
